How Do I Know If My TV has a De-Interlacer and do I need do anything with my A2
 
Hello,
After everyone's advice I got in on the Crutchfield deal and got the A2 for 199.99. People stated that if I had a good TV it likely had a de-interlacer and the A2 should be perfect. Well I figured the A2 was good no matter what, but now I am curious exactly how to tell if I have a deinterlacer and if I need to do anything to activate it. I am assuming since 1080i means 1080 interlaced, if I have a de-interlacer in my tv it should convert it to 1080p. Maybe I am wrong. I have a Mistubishi Diamond series DLP 65831 that is 1080p. I have read though the book and looked in the index and there is nothing on deinterlacing or interlacing. Just curious if anyone could point me in the right direction on what I need to do to get the best out of the A2 and my television together. Thanks.

It has one. Your guess would be as good as mine as far as how good it is, though. You don't need to do anything to activate it. Just set your A2 to output 1080i and the tv will handle the rest.

Any digital display (i.e. 1080p, etc.) that accepts 1080i must have an internal deinterlacer to perform the conversion.

When it de-interlaces the 1080i signal, when I hit info on the television, should it show a 1080p signal, or 1080i still. Curious, because the picture looks great, but the TV shows 1080i with everything hooked up through HDMI. Thanks

1080i. The info button should reflect the input, not what's actually being displayed.

Your TV is a fixed-pixel display. It has one and only one native resolution, which in this case is 1080p. Whatever signal you feed into it, the TV has to convert that to 1080p for display on its screen.

The Info button is merely going to tell you the resolution of the signal being input, not what shows up on screen. If you feed the set a 1080i signal, it will deinterlace it to 1080p. If you feed it a 480i DVD signal, it will have to deinterlace and scale that up to 1080p as well (scaling a DVD doesn't make it true High Definition).
